Abstract: The title compound, [Pd2Cl2(C6H5S)2(C18H15P)2]·2CHCl3, contains a centrosymmetric dinuclear palladium complex with the PdII cation in a slightly distorted square-planar coordination environment. The PdII cations are bridged by the S atoms of two benzenethiolate ligands with different Pd-S distances [2.2970 (11) and 2.3676 (11) Å]. The coordination of the metal atom is completed by a chloride anion [2.3383 (11) Å] and a triphenylphosphane ligand [2.2787 (11) Å]. Weak C-HCl interactions are present between complex molecules and the CHCl3 solvent molecule. The latter is disordered over two positions in a 0.792 (8):0.208 (8) ratio. The crystal under investigation was found to be twinned by nonmerohedry, with a fraction of 73.4 (1)% for the major twin component.
